It's groovy too baby!
This is my second tile to use the tangle pattern 'groovy'. As I was doing the first tile I started to think of ways I could make it 'groovier'. I knew I wanted a shagadelic background. And I tried to pick out more tangles that gave me the feeling of being back in the sixties. This time I got closer to the way Eden demonstrated to draw 'groovy'.
I also had fun creating the background. I created a couple so the picture below is another one I did at the same time. I did these with my Sakura Koi Coloring Brush Pens. First I scribbled some colors on a sheet of plastic. Then I used a clean brush and got the top of the tile wet with water. Using another wet brush I got some watery color from my plastic palette and flicked the color onto the tile. I repeated this with the other colors. Then I let it dry. After it was dry I needed to iron it to get it to lay flat again, but then I was ready to tangle. The pen is a purple Sakura Micron Pigma pen and the colored pencil is a violet Prismacolor.
